|Here we are outside our first stop waiting for the store to open.|
|This was at an antique store where I saw a toy set that we had as kids and that my girls now have that they were selling for $45.00 (note to self-when done with the people's house sell on E-bay).|
And now for my treasures (NOTE: when I got home I had the brilliant inspiration that I should have bought this, this and this-but that didn't come while I was actually shopping). I think I was being really practical so unfortunately I didn't find any crazy repurposing things but I did get a lot of good stuff.
In this picture we have a wooden box which I am going to repurpose into treasure box for small fry, two Dora purses (brand new) for the girls Christmas stockings, 2 pairs of shoes for the girls, a new dress for my pumpkin, shirts for the girls halloween costumes, a roll of wrapping paper (for a candy wreath I am making for Christmas), a new journal, new church books,other books, a set of two little dolls (brand new) perfect for the diaper bag, a bag of fabric I got for $2.00, and a new handbag.
Here we have 5 or 6 new shirts for me (two of which were brand spanking new), a baby doll stroller (this was for small fry because I had bought one for little sis for her birthday and I knew we were going to need 2 in our house), a hobby horse (also for a Christmas gift), a pair of shoes for me (they were free), Christmas tins for the girls, a pack of 20+ sheets of alphabet stickers, and a vanity cupboard for the bathroom (though I will turn it into a hair do station for pumpkins room or put it in my craft room)
And here we have a pile of clothes for the girls, 3 new skirts for small fry, 3 or 4 shirts that were in a box on a corner for free, a cute wrap around sweater for my pumpkin and a sweater to make my pumpkins Halloween costume. Somewhere in all of those piles was a large messenger style bag as well.
It was a blast and I am planning a spring session so keep it in mind-this time we want to make it really look like a big deal. Thanks to my friends and neighbors who tagged along on this adventure. I hope you had as much fun as me.
